A token of friendship and love,-and a collage

Today, in spite of the Islandisch volcano , spitting asches, and therefore making flying impossibly, I recieved a so special and beautifull gift, from a very sweet and dear friend -VICKI
Do you guess what i is?????

Look at this tag, giving a little hint,

take a close look....and you see the eggs???

and all the so very beautifull green -in every kind of shade-
knitted to the most dreamy,and fantastic birdsnest

It is realy a little dream, -the colours don`t do it justice, -they are so much more
juicy and spring green, and Vicki ,used all kind of different yarns--
about 40 kind!!!! to create this fantastic nest.
I feel so very blessed to recieve this beautifull, and loving gift,
from so far away,- and I treasure our friendship so very much Vicki, dear.
Take a look at Vicki`s blog, to discover many more beautifull and whimsy
nests, and so many other fantastic knitted things,-to admire,-or to buy.
I`m so in love with this ,sweet nest, -it looks alive ,and so ready
to become a home for one of my old cotton birds.
Thankyou, dear-I love your gift.

One of my collages , in fabric and paper,
in lilac tones.
Tomorrow it is friday again,-
and another week has past,-but it was filled with beauty and love, recieved
from all the wonderfull friendships,here in blogland.
I feel so very blessed ,- thanks to you all.
I wishes you a happy and lovely week-end.
Blessings ,Dorthe

Hello Dorthe,
What a lovely creation and I can just see one of your little cotton birds are tucked inside. What a beautiful, thoughtful gift.

I love your lilac art piece. So beautiful.

I hope things are too bad with the volcanic ash lingering.

Also, I'm excited to get my package from you. You didn't have to do that you know.....but I'm glad you did.

The nest is fantastic, I can only image it's beauty in person.

Your lilac collage has so many layers of textiles, a very nice assemblage.

Hi sweet friend. Your newest collage is just beautiful. Your style is so You! & I always love everything you do. I'm crazy about Vicki's bird nests too. I saw Dawn's & I think I need to order one for myself. They are truly magical.

Beth Leintz said...

The yarn nest is incredible. I started knitting because I was so intrigued by the textures, and I'm having fun looking over every inch of the nest to count the different yarns. Then I'm off to visit Vicki's blog.
